10.01pm Hugs among the Stars players, wide grins everywhere. The Scorchers are fairly dejected as expected. That's all from us tonight. Catch us for semi two tomorrow!

Alana King is the Player of the Match. for her wickets of Devine, Mooney and Jones. "Unbelievable performance. Been rough past few years. Unbelievable. You can't wipe the smile off my face. Happy to play my part and rolling with the punches. Chuffed to be in the team of the tournament too. We won't be bothered on who makes it tomorrow...both are good. Will focus on Saturday."

9.59pm The Stars win by seven wickets and 22 balls to spare. That was a breezy finish after a bit of nervousness after Lanning's dismissal. Sciver misses out on her fifty but she won't mind. Sutherland showed why she's so highly rated too. And remember King's three-wicket haul in the first innings. Villani's 10-ball 19 at the top was key too. The Stars completed their third win over the Scorchers this season, by the way, and reminded us all why they finished at the top of the points table in the league stage.

Spare a thought for Perth Scorchers too. Put in to bat under tricky batting conditions early on. They were so entertaining this season, especially Mooney and Devine. They'll come back strong next year though.

Devine to Sutherland, FOUR runs, clobbered over mid off, and Melbourne Stars are in the WBBL final for the first time!

Devinedivine: "Melbourne Stars bat more deeply. They have a world class spinner. Scorchers rely on Devine and Mooney and unfortunately not too many others step up. That is the difference and the reason why the Stars will win tonight and probably the final too. "

Four to win. Sciver needs four for her fifty. Can she seal both those targets?
